Many women do not realize that
a badly fitting bra can result in aches, pains and illness. Wearing unsuitable
bras for prolonged amounts of time can lead to shoulder and arm complaints,
headache, cervical spine problems and even back pain in the lower sections of
Dr Hans-Ulrich Krüger, senior
physician at a large rehabilitation center, believes that an ideal bra has to
have the following features:
"The straps should be
wide and padded and the underbust band anatomically shaped, elastic and
flexible. This allows the resulting stresses to be ideally distributed or
diverted and ensures that the musculoskeletal system and other tissue
structures are relieved and not irritated.
The bra should also feel good
on the skin and be completely free of textile contaminants."
